Centerfire Ammo FAQs

What is the main difference between centerfire and rimfire ammunition?

The key difference between centerfire and rimfire ammo lies in the primer placement within the cartridge. While centerfire cartridges feature a primer at the center for reliable ignition and reloading capabilities, rimfire ammo has the primer along the edge (or rim), limiting its power and reusability.

Are centerfire cartridges reloadable?

Yes, centerfire cartridges are reloadable if the casing isn't damaged from previous use. You can easily replace the primer, refill the case with gunpowder, and add a new bullet, making it a cost-effective option for frequent shooters.
